Perspectives on Chemistry and Society on the Occasion of the 75th Anniversary of CHIMIA
In 2021, CHIMIA published its 75th volume, after being called into life in 1947. To celebrate this milestone, throughout the year, we published short opinion pieces by invited authors on wide-ranging topics including science, industry, the environment, education, society, and politics under the title ‘A Perspective on Chemistry and Society’. We asked the authors to look forward rather than back and address current and future prospects for chemistry and society.
The authors are experts in their fields and represent the Divisions and Sections of the Swiss Chemical Society, universities, industry, and many other fields and we hope that you were able to take the opportunity to read and enjoy these articles and that they provided much food for thought.
In this special open access issue, which is available online, we present all twenty-two 75th Anniversary articles so that they can be enjoyed once more as a whole.
We would like to thank all the authors who generously and enthusiastically contributed their insightful thoughts and took the time to write these articles.
We look forward to many more volumes of CHIMIA while developing and improving both in print and online and thank the Swiss Chemical Society for the constant support and encouragement.
